Private Chess Teacher

I have been playing chess for well over 30 years. I have taught one on one
children and adults for about 10 years. I have great patience when I teach
students never believing that any concept is too difficult to understand or
master. I have a love for the game that I want to instill in others
I have hundreds of chess books and have gotten to know lots of chessplayers
throughout the years. I do my best to have my students gain and UNDERSTANDING of the game rather than just rote memorization.

Learn chess from a self taught expert 2100 rating. When exposed to chess years ago it was love at first site. I realized there’s a reason it’s the most highly referenced game in the world. As your skills grow you will uncover the pure beauty and life lessons chess has to offer. Patience, resilience, relentlessness... and most importantly, the maturity to think before you move. You must possess the restraint to tread calmly through positional warfare.. you must demonstrate the courage to strike when the iron is hot. As your teacher I will arm you with strategical knowledge and tactical prowess. My most important job however will be to make sure your love and passion for the game increases with each and every lesson. I want you to win. I want you to have fun. So why me instead of a grandmaster? I am young, relatable, personable guy. My friends say I’m funny! My lessons are cheaper. I have years and years of knowledge and examples to share. Thanks for reading, I’m so excited to start ...
